By successful response, do you mean "received a response successfully"  
or "received a response with a 2xx response code"? If the former, I  
think I'd agree, but if the latter, there are definitely non-2xx  
response codes that would still give an indication that a cached entry  
wasn't valid anymore (for example, a 404).
